Talent Carnival 28 May 2017

A day full of fun, meeting old and new friends, a bazaar with all kinds of stands, dance demos and of course the showcase of the Factor CO coached dance acts and guest appearances: this is the Talent Carnival! On the 28th of May the Talent Carnival takes place in Theater ‘t Kapelletje in Rotterdam. The theatre has a beautiful cozy garden. Perfect for dancing and having a bite or do some shopping at the Bazaar. Imagine a warm and friendly atmosphere in a colorful garden on a bright sunny day...

Do you want to be part of the Shimmy Shake Talent Carnival and make it even more sparkling?

We invite dance schools to showcase their school by doing a demo workshop or performance in the beautiful garden for the gathered public. Show the audience what your school has to offer by performing with your students. In case of rain the performances are indoor. Let's keep our fingers crossed for a sun shiny day!
